Untitled 1927 Silverton, Oregon Nitrate Film


Published 1927


Produced in November of 1927 by Silverton, OR photographer June Drake with the assistance of Albert Adams, owner of the local theatre known locally as "The Palace." The original Palace burned down and was re-built in the 1930s. This film depicts a number of different scenes of Silverton life in the 1920s.
